hello and welcome to our viewers joining us here in the united states and all-around the world. you are watching cnn "newsroom." i am rosemary church. vaccination rates are on the rise. the uk planning to roll out coronavirus booster shots. when those jabs could be going into arms. and then an olympian says she needs help and fears
returning home to belarus. good to have you with us. more pandemic weary americans are getting the point. the vaccines work. the number of new shots being given is rising quickly. the cdc reports that more than 700,000 americans got a dose of the vaccine for the past five straight days. still lightly less than half the country is now fully vaccinated. tens of millions still unvaccinated are vulnerable to the contagious delta variant, and new cases are climbing. all those states in dark red have new cases jumping 50% compared to the week before. hospitalizations are also surging so health officials are
stressing this number. more than 99.999% of people who are fully vaccinated will survive a breakthrough infection. dr. anthony fauci says the country made progress but there's still a long way to go. >> i don't think we will see lockdowns. i think we have enough of the percentage of people in the country -- not enough to crush the outbreak, but i believe enough to not allow us to get into the situation we were in last winter. but things are going to get worse. >> florida has become a new epicenter of the surge. the state accounts for nearly 1 in 5 of all new cases in the entire country. cnn's randi kaye is in florida and breaks down the numbers. >> reporter: in the past week or so we have seen more than 110,000 new cases here in the state of florida of covid. the daily average is about 1
15,800. if you look at how florida is contributing to the number of cases around the country, 19.2% of all new covid cases reported in the u.s. are right here in florida, mainly south florida. we are also experiencing similar numbers to what we saw back in january, really at the height of the pandemic. florida also still just about 49% of the population here is fully vaccinated, so still a ways to go. there's lot of concern about schools reopening and what is happening to children under 12 who are not yet eligible, and cases among that age group under 12, nearly 11,000 children in the last week or so testing positive under 12 years old for
covid. the positivity rate for that age group now is 18.1%. the statewide positivity rate is 18.2%. the governor issued an executive order saying you cannot mandate the mask in schools. he says any district who defies his executive order could risk losing funding and could become ineligible for grants. the governor pushing hard to keep this statewide open. i am randi kaye reporting in ri ri rivera beach, florida. some are already looking ahead to possible booster shots. the former head of the tfda was asked if the breakthrough cases
make boosters more urgent. >> one of the pieces of data in the cdc data said they looked at an outbreak in nursing homes and found that vaccine in the setting was 61% effective in preventing infection, so the initial premise is still in fact that they are preventing people from getting very sick. >> and the uk is already planning for a booster in the coming weeks. for more on that let's bring in cnn's selma. >> this is something that scientists, medical experts have been working on for months now and it's something the government said everybody should plan for, the possibility of booster shots and this is going to take place in september, really early on to provide a
layer of protection across the population to those most vulnerable through the winter season, and of course that's of concern that that could potentially be a time period to see a spike in cases. it comes on the back of a paper that was published by the government body that advises the authorities on their covid-19 policy. this is a not peer reviewed paper, and it's theoretical but does layout a few scenarios in which the virus was able to evade the vaccine. it goes through the s that the virus will be able to evade the vaccine at some point, and it's saying realistically this is a virus the population is going to have to live with. there's a few recommendations in
the paper. key among them is a type of booster thought which is what the uk authorities are already working on. there's recommendations there to prevent variants from recombining, rosemary. that's what authorities are concerned about, variants mixed with other variants and that leads to the mutation, and so living with the virus long term. >> the uk no longer requires vaccinated eu or american visitors to quarentine. >> if you are a traveler coming from the eu or from the united states and you can show that you are fully vaccinated, and you have to have official paperwork showing you are fully vaccinated, you no longer have to quarantine. there's still caveats here. travelers will also have to show
a negative pcr test before departure. they will also have to take another covid-19 test two days after their arrive annual in the uk. a few limitations there. france, if you are coming from france, you still have to follow quarantine rules, and this is something the travel industry has been asking for, and that means families could be reunited again and tourists can potentially come back. >> good news there. we always take that when it comes to us. thanks so much. booster shots are already a reality in israel. over the weekend officials began offering boosters to people over 60 who have already been fully vaccinated. the campaign kicked off with the president becoming the first person to get a third shot on friday. in china officials are trying to contain a covid
outbreak that started at the airport nearly two weeks ago and has spread to 11 provinces and six cities. steven young joins us from beijing. good to see you. how are officials dealing with this outbreak? >> the central leadership sent a vice premier to supervise the local response to the outbreak. this is the same senior official they sent to wuhan in the peak of that outbreak in the global pandemic, and that's how concerned the leadership feels about the spread of the new cluster that shows no sign of abating. on sunday they have 99 new cases, and this in country they had not seen this level of infection for months and now, of course, it's impacting not just airport staff but airline,
cruise, schoolchildren, and doctors and nurses across the country. we see authorities reimposing. we're seeing more and more tourists attractions as well as airports being shut down as well as local officials including those in beijing advising residents not to leave town. in the chinese capitol they tightened requirement effectively banning anybody from the high and medium risk areas by cutting out transportation links to these regions. as of now there's no indication the leadership here will change their current approach, which is zero tolerance towards locally tolerated cases.
>> we'll be watching closely. many thanks. joining me now in east g greenwich, rhode island, she's the dean of public health at brown university. thank you for talking with us and all that you do. >> thank you. it's a joy to be here with you, rosemary. >> wonderful. doctor, israel is now administering a third covid booster and the uk is doing the same next month. when should other nations follow suit, do you think? >> here in the united states we will follow the same process we have throughout the vaccine rollout. we need to wait for data presented to the fda. wait for them to review it and for them to approve it before we start administering boosters. i fully expect at this point we will be following the lead of israel and the data from israel and administering those boosters
to folks who have cancer, those imuno suppressed. the timeline is up in the air until the fda gives us clearance. >> dr. anthony fauci is crediting some republican politicians to encourage the uptick in vaccination rates. is that what patients are telling you when they come to get their shots? >> i offer folks shots in the emergency department, and they have a variety of reasons they avoided shots and they have a variety of reasons they accept them from me, and they avoided them because it was difficult to get them, and then i do think
republican politicians speaking up in favor of vaccines is starting to make a difference, and i think sadly the delta variant itself is making a difference, as folks see they are once again at risk by not getting a vaccine, that takes away some of the hesitancy or barriers that kept them from showing up. >> dr. fauci also believes enough people in the country are now protected to prevent lockdowns, but he says things will get worse. do you agree with him on both of those points? >> i do agree with him on both. regarding lockdowns, we have a lot of americans vaccinated now. approximately 50% across the country are fully vaccinated, of course that's lower in some states and higher in others. we also, of course, still have measures like masks that we used to help manage the spread of covid. i think our rate of vaccination as well as just the american politics are high enough that we won't go back into lockdowns but we need to get more folks
vaccinated or it's going to continue to get worse. unfortunately those just getting shots in arms today, rosemary, they will not be fully protected for four to six weeks if they are getting moderna or pfizer, so we have a surge ahead of us before we find the american population is better protected. >> how far away are we from the fda giving full approval to the covid vaccines, and how big of an impact could that have on those still not willing to get their shots? >> there are a number of things i wish i had answers for. how far away we are from the fda giving full approval is one of those. and how far away we are from giving shots to kids is another. from my mind and most scientists, that should come any day now. we have plenty of scientific data and safety data and
real-world data about the administration of these vaccines, but traditionally the full process takes months, so my guess is it will be early fall at best. for kids -- oh, go ahead. >> please, continue. didn't mean to interrupt. >> i was going to say for kids, which is the other part, i am hoping for kids we will see approval mid fall for the 5 to 11-year-olds. >> you did mention earlier that there were a variety of reasons, there's conspiracy theories, and republicans not getting behind the shots, and that's starting to change, and there are groups in the community that are very resistant to the shots. what tends to be your message when people come in to the hospital and say to you, i'm not sure if i should get this. what do you say to them that changes their mind? >> so the first and biggest thing is that i listen, i listen why they have not gotten it yet
or are afraid of it, and i try to counteract that, and if it's misinformation, i share facts, and i share information packets and i sit and i talk and i answer their questions. sometimes the reasons are not actual misinformation but it's barriers like i'm afraid i will not feel good the next day or didn't have transportation, and there, too, listening and providing resources makes a difference. the biggest thing is it's easy to say this is all about politics. yes, there's a percentage of people who are not getting vaccinated simply because of politics, but for a lot of folks it's that fear and toxic stew on social media, and the best thing we can do is to be respectful and listen. >> great message. doctor, thank you so much for talking with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. coming up, an olympic sprinter came to tokyo to win for her country. now she's hoping for asylum. her story, next.

olympics can't divorce themselves from global politics. now a belarusian is being forced to with draw from the games. krystsina tsimanouskaya says she is afraid she will be jailed. joining me now, world sports, patrick snell, here in atlanta, and blake in tokyo. good to see you both. blake, let's go to you first for the latest on krystsina tsimanouskaya. what are you learning? >> well, rosemary, she was supposed to be competing tonight in the women's 200 meter race inside the new national stadium, and instead on sunday the 24 posted this to social media pleading for help. >> translator: i asked the international olympic committee
for help and i was put under pressure and they are trying to take me out of the country without my consent. i asked the international olympic committee to intervene. >> she said she was ordered to fly back, and the sprinter says this all happened a few days after she posted a video criticizing her coaches and the belarus national sporting authority late last week. she posted a video on social media where she alleged she was included on a list to run the 4 x 4 rely behind her back and without her consent, and this is an event that she had not prepared for so she didn't feel like she was ready to be considered for it. krystsina tsimanouskaya said she was forcibly taken to the airport by members of the
belarus national team and once there she approached a japanese police officer and said she would like to apply for political asylum. she now feels safe and secure and the ioc addressed the situation earlier today. take a listen. >> we are talking again to her this morning to understand what the next steps could be, what she wants to pursue and we will give her support in that decision. as i say, she's in the hands of the authorities at the moment. we have also asked the belarus nic for a full written report. >> in an interview with the belarusian sports news on sunday, krystsina tsimanouskaya said her fears are of arrests if she returns to her country. so far, japan, the czech rep and
poland offered her visas, and we will find out where she decides to apply for asylum later today. >> we will continue to follow this story, of course. many thanks. we are also across all of the olympic sporting actions, and patrick snell is here for that. he joins us now. good to see you. what a day for italy. bring us up-to-date. >> incredible stuff, rosemary. talk about the summer of italian sport. it just got a lot better, didn't it? they have the fastest man in the world. he won the 100 meters. this is an incredible achievement for a man competing in long jump until he switched three years ago, and it makes it all the more impressive, doesn't it?
he celebrated in the arms of his calm padre. it caught the attention. they went up against each other for two hours, and both made the best jumps of the competition at 2 meters 37. what happened? i will tell what you follows? a wonderful moments of sportsmanship. they wanted to split the prize, the first joint winners in olympic athletics since 1912. >> you look at me, i look at him, and we understand there was no need to go, that's it. not even a question. >> probably i will never share a
gold medal with anybody else because we were the only two athletes there that a jumper can pass through, and i know what he did to be back and he know what i did to be back, and you can't forget the emotion for somebody that sacrificed his life for this, and sharing with a friend is more beautiful. >> thank you. >> really a wonderful story. earlier, this monday we can tell you puerto rico's camacho-quinn wins the 100 meter hurdles, and second ever olympic track and field medal. the united states, kendra harrison winning silver. and a historic moment for a
greek sport in the men's long jump, and the cuban competitor also jumping that distance but -- here's the but, tentoglou winning it. >> got it all covered there. patrick snell, thanks as always. appreciate it. and then the rising tensions in the gulf resgionon. that's ahead. feel the power of contrast therapy, so you can rise from pain.

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and all-around the world. i am rosemary church. you are watching cnn "newsroom." the u.s. says it's confident iran is responsible for a deadly drone attack on a oil tanker last week. secretary of state said there was no justification for the attack on the israeli-managed tanker. iran denies any involvement. nic robertson is live. what evidence is there to support the claim iran was responsible? >> well, they are saying it's highly likely that it was iranian. also the british front office points out there had been three
previous such attacks on israeli-linked vessels just since february of this year. they are saying this absolutely has to stop, this type of targeting of international shipping and international waters by iran, it has to stop and what we are hearing from the u.s. state department secretary blinken is there will be a response forthcoming. we heard the foreign minister said they are happy the u.s. and uk see the same situation as israel does. and early saturday an iranian state link media indicated that according to unnamed sources this was an attack in response for an israeli air strike against a military base inside
syria, so contradictly messages emerging from iran but a clear message emerging from the international community that iran must desist. what will the forthcoming response look like? i think it will be more diplomatic than military, but however from israel's perspective, iran is a terrorists -- these attacks are terrorism on the high seas, and these will not be tolerated. the tensions are clearly rising. where does it go from here? not clear. one of the interesting pieces of the puzzle at the moment as there will be a new president sworn in in iran, who is viewed as being much more hard line than the previous, rosemary. >> nic, many thanks.
the taliban are poised to seize their first capitol in afghanistan. there's heavy fighting between the taliban and afghan government forces, the capitol of helmand provence. the afghan military has brought in special forces and carried out air strikes. the u.n. refugee agency says more than 3.5 million people have been displaced by the fighting across afghanistan. israel's top court could rule soon on a eviction case in jerusalem. the latest on that legal battle coming up.

over the sheikh jarrah neighborhood. and the court is expected to rule if it will hear arguments in an appeal. good to see you. so how is this likely to play out? >> so rosemary, i am standing outside of the israeli supreme court where the hearing is to take place in the next half hour to hour. it was the tensions in the neighborhood in east jerusalem that helped contribute the spark the 11-day stand off in may. i want to walk you through what the case is about. lower courts upheld that jews
owned the land here, and when israel took control in the 1967 war it soon passed a law that says israeli jews could try and reclaim property they say they owned prior to 1948. and palestinians say they don't have the same sort of legal recourse to claim back land they say they lost and is now the state of israel. this legal battle has been going on for many years and it's part of the tension in jerusalem, he east jerusalem in the past few months and in the past few years. we are seeing protesters gathering here around this case. even if the supreme court denies hearing this appeal, it would essentially mean the evictions could move forward, but israeli media is reporting the government may not carry out the
evictions because of the political evictions, and whatever happens at this hearing today, everybody in the city, in the region, many people are very closely watching, and with a little bit of nerves and tension because they are reeling from the violence back in may. >> i know you will continue to watch this. many thanks. at least two people have been killed in the lebanese town south of beirut. hezbollah said it was during a funeral procession. the group calls it a targeted attack against shiite mourners. the army has been deployed to restore calm. the area has had a long history of flare ups between its mixed shiite and sunni residents.

welcome back, everyone. the pace of covid-19 vaccinations is rising in the u.s. amid a surge in cases driven by the delta variant. the country is now vaccinating more than 660,000 people per day on average. that's the highest rate in nearly a month. we're seeing an uptick in southern states where vaccine hesitancy has kept rates low. dr. anthony fauci says outreach from republican politicians have likely helped to drive numbers
up. >> i'm also gratified by seeing that even people who in the beginning were reluctant to promote vaccination are now doing it, people like republicans, like steven scalise or desantis, and asa hutchison out there beating the bushes to get people vaccinated. i think that's what is happening now. >> democrats in the house is wanting to continue the moratorium. federal officials say there was resistance from state governments in getting the housing money to renters. it's estimated more than 11
million adults are behind on rent. >> the real issue is how to get money out to renters who through no fault of their own is behind on their rent and to keep landlords in their homes, and that's a win/win. >> while frustration mounts over the nationwide eviction moratorium, lawmakers in washington are moving a step closer to a infrastructure bill, and that is after months of pain staking negotiations. it includes $550 billion in new investments over five years. this includes money for roads, bridges and other major projects. majority leader, chuck schumer
a. democrat touted the deal on the senate floor. >> these days it isn't easy to do major bills in the senate, especially bipartisan ones, so i have tried to prod the negotiators along when they needed it and given them the space when they asked for it. in the end, the bipartisan group of senators have produced a bill that will dedicate substantial resources to repair, maintain and upgrade our nations physical infrastructure. >> the deal fell short of the over $2 trillion proposal president joe biden unveiled back in march, and it drew criticism from many republicans for making investments in areas such as caregiving and workforce training. at least 91 large wildfires are burning in the u.s. right now, mainly in the west. together they have destroyed almost 2 million acres, around
800,000 hectors. oregon's bootleg fire has been burning for almost a month, and it's 74% contained but not expected to be fully under control until october. drought and record-breaking heat continue to fuel the droughts. and then the youngest woman making a solo flight around the world. to some it may seem daunting, but to zara rutherford it's all about reaching new heights. >> in a bid to level the playing field for women in aviation a 19-year-old is taking charge. zara rutherford may be young but she's ready to circle the globe. if she succeeds this belgian
british national will be the youngest woman to fly solo around the world and the youngest to do it in a microlight airplane. >> growing up i did not see very many female pilots or scientists, and those are two of my passions and it's discouraging when there's nobody that can relate to you, and i wanted to fly around the world and have other girls see me and think i would love to fly one day, too. >> she will be flying a shark ultralight, which is one of the sponsors of her flight. she will begin in brussels traveling as far south as columbia and then turning north and bear straight or fly over south and southeast russia, and then over the middle east before returning home. she said the journey should take two or three months.
her mission is to close the gender gap in evation. >> there's a lot less women in aviation, 5% is commercial pilots that are women. >> her mother, bshe says she's nervous but proud. >> when she first told me about it my heart skipped a beat. it took me a little bit to digest, and now i am so proud and fully behind her. but as i said, mixed feelings. >> rutherford hopes this will help girls to follow her path. >> joining me now is zara rutherford and the historic flight is set for next week. good to have you with us. good to talk with you. >> good to talk with you, too.
>> it's an incredible goal you have set yourself as a 19-year-old woman. talk to us about what inspired you to try and fly solo around the world at this particular time? >> i always enjoyed adventure and i have been dreaming about something like this for my whole life. when i finally finished school, i had this year where i could actually do something crazy, something completely -- yeah, crazy, really. so i started off preparing and now here i am flying around the world. >> how confident are you that you can pull this off? what do you think will be the biggest challenges ahead? >> i have a great team supporting me. i am lucky all-around. i think the biggest challenge will be there's unexpected where
i can come in, and i will be flying in places like northern iraq, and i am excited. i have a great team supporting me, so nothing bad should happen. >> what you have been doing to prepare for this long journey? how did you work out the flight path that you would take, the fuel stops along the way, and how long would you be flying at each interval? >> sure. i have been training for a long time, especially this week i have been flying every single day, multiple hours a day. right behind me is a simulator from brussels, and from there i can actually see the airfields where i will be landing. i have been playing in new york, and russia, just from my home in brussels. it's been really amazing.
the route has been chosen to be the destination for the requirements needed for the flight to be an around-the-world-flight. and my trip is longer than it has to be, but i think i am doing this to get the experience. >> of course, this is a major challenge for you ahead. what is the longest distance you can flown so far before you actually set off and do this? >> so just recently actually this was two months ago, i believe, i helped ferry an aircraft from texas to india. so that was really my longest flight to date, yeah. >> that is very impressive. i am not sure, did you mention -- how long would you fly for? are you playing nine or ten hours before you take a rest, before you then stop for fuel?
how would you figure all of that out? >> so it's a little less, considering i will be flying three months ten hours a day, that would get dangerous with fatigue, and i am flying five hours a day, and every three days taking a break. that way i have the right mind-set and not too tired and i will successfully go around the world. >> how do you put your mind in the right head space for something like this? it's huge and certainly a gain at the age of 19? >> i love flying and i'm really excited about it. just meeting people, and learning new cultures, and especially new places, and it's so beautiful. i'm really excited and happy to go. >> how can people follow you on social media? >> you can follow me on
instagram and facebook, and i post every day @flyzara. finally this hour it might be the most expensive cake you will ever eat, that's if you want a little slice of royalty. a piece of cake from prince charles's and diana's wedding. it features the slice from one of the 23 cakes made for the royal wedding. that's not all. also up forbidding, printed ceremony and service programs for the wedding and a royal memorial breakfast program. the auction will be held on august 11th. thank you for being with us. i am rosemary church.
